|Beige Channel - Recipes From the Scary Kitchen [slapmp3_015] - Beige Channel|
A friendly listener-performer from the North of Here, Michael V. Farley has been tangential to Slapart since the days of No Transmission. Here radios whizz by vacuum cleaners powered by pigs that CaN fly. Varied experimental techniques with a home-cooked flavor. Not comfort food but 'comfort sound'. Through the static, faintly voices and other human sounds sometime distinguish themselves, suggesting memories you cant quite remember...

|CCI n.kra - House Falling [slapmp3_032] - CCI n.kra|
A house does not fall into disrepair unaided. Its supports buckle and its walls crumble often while people still live in them. Longtime collaborators CCI (bass, flute) and n.kra (guitar, sax) present two long contemplative pieces of equal length. Each is a structure built, collapsed, and sorted through the ruins.

|Jeremy Carter - An Ominous [slapmp3_022] - Jeremy Carter|
In this second installment of the slaptape series, Jeremy Carter of the jam-improv-rock outfit Carter Bros. explores the more delicate side of his hand-made instruments. This cassette has two sides: one side made using Carter's own uniquely designed electric upright bass (see picture), the other side using a standard 12-string electric also crafted by Carter. The music itself is beautiful... extended Frippertronic guitar drones, heavily bowed bass figures mashed to death by equalizers and sample...

|n.kra - Mudbuggin' [slapmp3_023] - Nicholas Krapels|
In the third installment of the slaptape series, n.kra composes some prepared guitar pieces specifically for distribution on cassette. Please tolerate it in all its digital preciseness here. Side A offers 6 different soundscapes, all but track 2 prepared in the guitar. Side B is a true b-side. 30 minutes of skittering and radios interrupted by long, extended 60-cycle hums filtered and extended and layered in real-time...

|DJ Shield - Midnight On an Open Highway [slapmp3_012] - DJ Sheild|
Who is DJ Shield you ask? An unknown electro-soldier from the Deep South, DJ Shield does for experimental/electronic/improv underground what DJ Shadow did for funk 45s and old school hip hop. Although this artist works exclusively with samples of pre-recorded music, you'd be hard-pressed to discern that from the organic nature of this release. Some of the samples sound like Evan Parker, Blackalicious, Radian thrown in with some Tuvan throat singing, kotos, shakuhachi, etc...
